Artist highlights animal portraits
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association is featuring accomplished portrait painter Benita Gaudier as its guest artist for January. Gaudier will present her sensitive portraits of domestic and barnyard animals, and demonstrate her techniques.
Painting animal portraits is an unexpected addition to her scenery work. This artist paints animals for her own enjoyment and by commission, with many happy clients in Marin County and the East Bay. She is charmed by the faces of animals and the emotional rewards of painting clients' beloved pets. As an animal lover, she treats her subjects with sensitivity and perception. Due to an architectural background, her style combines realism with a touch of impressionism.
Gaudier has studied art and painting her entire life and holds a degree in Commercial Interior Design. She has attended numerous painting workshops with well-known artists from all over the country and traveled with them to Europe. Currently, Gaudier teaches watercolor and focuses on commissions for home, garden, and pet portraits.
